Of the movies listed in the poll above (I know there are more), which one do you think is the best? Personally, I would say Apocalypse Now- 'nuff said. Don't you love the smell of napalm in the morning? ;)

Apoalypse Now, by far. It had it all, well at least Redux did. The entire movie kicked ass, the Ride of the Valkyries and surfing during an assault. Full Metal Jacket was good and so was Platoon, but Apocalypse now started off with 'The End' by the Doors, and is one of my fav. movies of all time.

"The horror! The horror!"

Apocalypse Now (redux) definately. I've watched it countless times and it's absolutely fantastic. I found the surfing during the assault scene really funny. :D Great stuff.

Apocalypse now, by far. But shouldn't the Deer Hunter be in the poll?

Platoon. It perfectly portrays the life of the typical foot soldier in Vietnam. Apoc has to settle for 2nd ;)

Full Metal Jacket, because to me it portrays the inhumanity of Vietnam the best.

From the Gunny to losing squadmates to a 7 year old sniper.
